Zendstation Smilde is a tall, free-standing structure, similar to the Gerbrandy Tower and was built for directional radio services and TV and FM-transmissions in 1959 in the Netherlands. Its base is an 80 metre high reinforced concrete tower, on which a guyed mast is mounted. At construction the height of the tower of Zendstation Smilde was 270 metres with this mast. A section was added later so its total height is now 303.5 m (996 ft).
